ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A funky, soulful groove pumps hard in the studio. From the low-lit vocal booth we hear a sexy, sultry voice weaving tales of love, life, and inner strength. Caressing each note with tenderness, this sistah takes her time to tell her story.

Singer/songwriter April Hill is breathing new life into the soul scene. Her unique vocal style and gift with pen and paper is sure to have folk talking about this young Atlanta, Georgia-born talent for a long time.

April Hill, a Howard University graduate, came to New York City and began working as a financial analyst at the prestigious Goldman Sachs investment banking firm. The long hours and fast pace of Wall Street did not keep April from following her dream of becoming a recording artist. With the support of her mother and father, April decided to leave Goldman Sachs and focus her attention on developing her craft as a singer/songwriter.

April quickly caught the attention of soul singer/producer Marlon Saunders. Marlon fell in love with April's soulful jazzy sound and invited her to share the stage as his opening act on tour. After a sold-out performance at the legendary Blue Note club in New York City, Marlon approached April and her parents about working with April.

The next day, Marlon and April were in the studio writing and recording song demos. It was around this time that the musical director for Ne-Yo phoned Marlon in search of background vocalists for the David Letterman Show. Marlon referred April and she was quickly rehearsing and working out background parts with Ne-Yo. April Hill's dreams were finally coming true.

After a busy summer of touring, April began to hone her songwriting skills. Marlon and April would spend hours working on material, trading melodies and lyrics until they found April's groove. And now this beautiful young artist has delivered Love 360, a soulful recording filled with beautiful phrasing, simple and poignant lyrics that will have fans feeling a deep intimate connection with April Hill. April's unique style combined with the hypnotic funky arrangements of co-producer Shawn Lucas will have soul heads of every generation enjoying Love 360.

If you don't mind a little jazz in your funk, a little heartache with your happiness, and a little poetry with your backbeat, then your search is over! April Hill tells a story worth listening to.

Produced by Marlon Saunders and Shawn Lucas with special guests Javon Jackson and Mark Gross
